Busy schedule ahead of youth Tigers: Naveed

SPORTS REPORTER, DHAKA
Busy schedule ahead of 
youth Tigers: Naveed
In this recent file photo Bangladesh youth team coach Naveed Nawaz brief under-19 cricketers at BCB Indoor Gymnasium in Mirpur.

Naveed Nawaz, head coach of the Bangladesh U-19 cricket team, tipped the next six months as crucial for the boys, stating that the matches they will play on different conditions within the six-month spell will be handy for them ahead of the ICC U-19 World Cup.

The extravaganza event for the youth will be taken place in South Africa in between January –February, 2020.

Arranged by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), the youth Tigers will play a string of bilateral and reciprocal series along with tri-nation tournament at home and away within this period of time.

The youth Tigers will travel to England in July to play a triangular series involving hosts England, India and Bangladesh. They, therefore, will go to Sri Lanka to play for ACC U19 Asia Cup. By then, they will tour to New Zealand to play a five-match ODI series. Finally they will play a reciprocal series against their Sri Lankan counterparts on home soil, the series will be the last for them prior to their World Cup mission.

“It’s been almost 10 months since these boys started the training together. So, it has been a massive amount of improvement but we played three competitions so far in Sri Lanka (Asia Cup), which is so far satisfactory,” Naveed Nawaz said before going for the Eid vacation.  

“I think, July onwards we got very big competition coming ahead of us. We got Tri-nation in England. We got Asia Cup coming in Sri Lanka. We got one day five ODI in New Zealand. As well as Sri Lanka is coming in Bangladesh for two youth Test matches and five one-day. So, the next six months will be crucial for us,” Nawaz told The Independent at the national academy of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.

Sri Lanka-born coach said that playing opportunities on England and New Zealand conditions which are akin to South African condition will ultimately be benefited them in the World Cup.

“It’s brilliant. I think, BCB is looking into the matter and planning for the process. A lot of the competitions are for the players which is very good. We’ve been preparing the team for the World Cup in South Africa. So, we’re looking forward to that,” he said. “BCB organized to two series in England as well as New Zealand. Boys will get to play in the similar conditions to accustom to the condition in South Africa. So, these are the good things,” he maintained.

“And I think, by the time, it comes December and that we finished all the duals. I think, boys did all in good shots,” he added.    

The youth head coach said that what they did in the last three weeks especially under Trevor Penney was good that will be helpful for the young boys.  

“We started the camp on the third of May. It was good. The agenda was mostly skill-based camp we had the some days for fitness camp and then 10 days for fielding camp as well because fielding specialist Trevor Penney was working with the boys for 10 days and various others skills as well batting and bowling,” he said.

“The first some days were focused on fitness and then conditioning. It was very successful camp I supported to talk as it has been finished in expected ways as well,” he concluded.
